New for academic year 2009/10!
A weekly informal session where staff and students have the opportunity to discuss and debate current topical events. The format is flexible to allow discussion of events after they happen and we are open to suggestions for topics from students.
Behind the News is a new issue based discussion group taking place in the Politics and International Studies departments (POLIS) at the University of Leeds. Each session takes up a relevant topic and asks researchers, academics and students to explore and share their view-points together.
This website is a forum for the debates and discussions started in Behind the News to extend beyond the hour.
